      At 62 yrs of age, I was very impressed with this eyeliner. This eyeliner easily glides over my wrinkled, crepey eyelids. The mechanical point works beautifully and the cap screws into place with ease. I am very impressed!

          Purchased this in gold/copper and loved it so much I went back the next day to get the black one. Always sharp, no need for sharpening. Produces a smooth, thin line. Can build for a thicker, more defined line. Eyes look fresh from morning until night. Very, very pleased.

              Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

              Seriously, worst eyeliner I've ever used. I'm actually really surprised to see how many people actually like this product. Okay, the eyeliner formula itself is not bad, but the self sharpening casing is horrible because if the tip of the eyeliner breaks there's no way to twist the eyeliner up. You have to twist the cap back on then off and keep doing that over and over until it rebuilds the tip. Very weird and very inconvenient. The casing really should have been thought about more. Will not purchase again.

              Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

              I received a sample of this on 11/19/16, and absolutely loved it! I purchased it on 01/17/17, still loving it, as it is the best eyeliner i have found for my 59 year old eyes.....HOWEVER, it broke off in less then a month, so I purchased another on 02/27/17, However, it broke off again after a few weeks. Purchased again on 03/20/17, this time when it broke off, I decided to take it apart and look at it. Discovered that it wasn't breaking off, it was actually gone, done. The length of the actual eye liner color itself is an 1" long. Very deceiving, when the eye liner is actually over 5" long. We have to pay enough for make up, the least you could do is give us our money's worth. I can't afford to purchase a new one every 3 weeks. AND FYI, I put this on my upper and lower lid once in the morning, THAT'S IT. So why can't you provide a quality amount of product????? Smashbox certainly doesn't need the money. Wonder what other products short us that we can't see. Mascara??? I will have to go back to my old store brand of $9 that lasts at least 2 months. So very disappointed in you. Unable to recommend unless you can afford to purchase every 3 weeks. ONLY CON. To provide outstandind customer service, you should fix this.

                    How "long" is the product, in terms of the eye liner inside the plastic? I got one of these in a sample and it was gone after about 10 uses that made me very sad! Trying to figure out if this sample was the full size or truly, a sample.

                      Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get more than 10 uses out of this product.

                      Hi There! Smashbox is cruelty free. Saturate a cotton round with your favorite makeup remover and place on your lids for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds the liner should have loosened and you'll be able to wipe it away in long, even, gentle strokes

                      Try these steps:

                      Put the cap on the liner.
                      Then, put your left hand on the cap and your right hand on the base.
                      Twist your right hand in the direction of the arrow and your left hand the opposite way.
                      You will feel that you have to twist past a point of tension; proceed, and you will hear a click.
                      Remove the cap.

                      That should sharpen it!
